Why buy a new build home?
More buyers than ever before are realising that with new housing developments you receive so much more than you would with an older property.

For one thing, as the very first occupier, it's a house that has only belonged to you and no-one else. If you buy off-plan, you can even have a say in extras such as fixtures and fittings, flooring or garden landscaping. With a new house you can also take pleasure in knowing it will have the latest specifications such as being more energy efficient and have the latest security measures. You'll have far less repairs with a new house than with an older property. Then there is the 10-year warranty you receive which covers any building defects found in the property during that time.

These are just some of the benefits that a new home can give you, and  new property developments are also situated in stunning locations right across the UK. Buying a new home has become the only choice for so many and we think the more you find out about new build homes, the more you'll understand why.

Just as there is a comprehensive choice of new builds you can buy, there is a wide range of ways you can purchase your new home.

One of the major benefits of buying a new build property is that it allows you to access a whole variety of schemes, initiatives and incentives offered by the government. Help to Buy is perhaps the best known but Shared Ownership is another one. It's not just one scheme but comprises a number of different initiatives that are aimed to help you buy your own house..It's been a huge success since it began, with hundreds of thousands of buyers using it, especially first-time buyers. For most government initiatives, buying a new build home is an essential part of the qualifying criteria.

Here's more information about some of the government schemes on offer.
